New Jersey is a state of firsts. It was home to the first city illuminated by electric lighting and was the setting of the nation's first organized baseball game. The Associated Press reported in 2008 that New Jersey had the highest percentage of millionaires in the country.

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development projects an increase in the educational and health care services as well as the professional and business services sector between 2008 and 2018. As of December 2010, the sectors with the most employees in New Jersey were trade, transportation and utilities, government, education and health services, and professional services. The Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that a degree from a vocational school is generally required to obtain an entry-level position in these fields, such as administrative assistant or social and human services assistant.
